A short history of trade marks from 1876 to 1939

December 12, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm



The ‘Trade Mark Registration Act of 1875’, allowed the formal registration of trade marks at the UK Patent Office for the first time.

Our collection of original registered designs and artworks, spanning the period from 1876 to1939, offers a wonderful opportunity to view the changing design styles of the trade mark in this country, many iconic by today’s standards.

This webinar will look at a minute selection of this very under-examined series of records; it will touch on the growth and history of the trade mark in this country and offer an intriguing snapshot into Victorian social history.

This is an online only event.
